Waddle Dee Town is a small settlement in the world of Kirby and the Forgotten Land which - as its name suggests - is home to many Waddle Dees. These Waddle Dees populate the town as Kirby rescues them from the Beast Pack, and the town grows in size and complexity as more are saved. The town itself serves as a hub area and rest stop for Kirby to visit in-between playing through regular stages, and Kirby has access to a number of Sub-Games and other side activities while he is here. The town also serves as the equivalent to main menus in older Kirby games, since the equivalent of the Theater, Jukebox, and boss endurance modes are found here, and the Extra Mode - Isolated Isles: Forgo Dreams - is also accessible from here after clearing Lab Discovera.

Waddle Dee Town is initially found in a ruined state when Kirby reaches it at the end of Point of Arrival. After rescuing Elfilin from a cage, he explains that he fought hard with the Waddle Dees against the Beast Pack but that eventually all of the Waddle Dees were captured. As Kirby rescues more Waddle Dees, the town gradually becomes livelier as they rebuild everything, and then add more things on top of it. At its maximum size, it is home to 300 Waddle Dees, and other characters, namely King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Clawroline, can be found there as well by the end of the game.


The following distinct building and other locations are present in Waddle Dee Town:
